However, "some big mouthed camper told your father it was better fishing further up the river", as unhappy Cathy put it.
Therefore, it was off again, along a very bumpy, dusty, dirt road for a further 40 km's.
And no, that's NOT an off-road caravan they have. But a good fisherman requires dedication.
They have now stopped & are camped along the Roper River with about 30 other caravans - very pretty & right on the river. Cathy was a little worried when Lance took Scruffy out fishing with him in the small tinny, with a Croc Sign at the Boat Ramp!
On the first day, Lance caught this beautiful sized Barra - oh, what fun!
And Yes, suddenly they would be staying here for the next 2 weeks minimum.
"Who really needs to see the rest of N.T. - I'm sure it's all much the same", assured Lance.
Cathy is enjoying relaxing with some craft, reading & NOT DRIVING. Their friends, Mick & Marianne were expected to arrive & stay with them for a little while now.
Only 3 weeks today ... 21 sleeps ... How unprepared we suddenly feel!
